Yoisho Ramen at Gunawarman Senopati Jakarta

January 15th, 2017. I don’t remember how I knew about this new place. I think it just came to me. Then I got invitation to the blogger gathering at Yoisho Ramen. Well, I told them that I’m not in the mood for meeting many people in a gathering. I prefer doing my foodtasting alone or with my close friends. So, I came today. Yiipee!

Why Yoisho (よいしょ)?

The word “Yoisho” is classified as a call or a shout of encouragement to oneself or to others. It also embodies the spirit of our restaurant and the dish we served, a simple bowl of piping hot noodles with a world of depth to them, executed with an almost manic attention to detail that typifies the modern Japanese chef.

When I saw the place, I was very happy to see that they have outside area. It’s really good to take photos, of course. And the outdoor area is very beautiful. Simple but pretty. Well, I sat inside for sure. And I fell in love with the cute girl at the facade. She was eating ramen. LOL. Very cute. And I love the way they put funny murals inside, on the wall. It was really cheer me up. The place isn’t very spacious but very comfortable with great hospitality from the people there. And they have open kitchen. I didn’t have a chance to take photos there, since they were so busy, I was afraid I would disturb them LOL. Maybe next time ya. 🙂

Chicken Gyoza 39k

Really love their chicken gyoza. Tasted so good and flavourful. Actually, for me, it’s very hard to find a delicious gyoza. I tried a restaurant which said they specialized in gyoza, but when I tried the gyoza I was disappointed. So when I tried their chicken gyoza, I lowered my expectation. Turned out, it was really gewd!! The texture was perfect! Super recommended!

IMG_0358 IMG_0359

Chicken Karaage 39k

The texture of the chicken was juicy on the inside but not very crispy on the outside. I loooooved it! I didn’t really like too-crispy texture on the outside of my chicken karaage. And it was not too salty. I fell in love with my first bite of this tender, delicous, slightly crispy and juicy piece of chicken! Yum!

IMG_0360 IMG_0361

Honey Butter Potato Chips 33k

Actually, they should put chilli powder on top of the potato chips. But I asked them not to hahaha.. It was very good. The crunchy and crispy texture. Hmm.. The combination of sweet honey and creamy butter on thinly-sliced, crunchy potatoes will definitely tickle your taste buds. Addicting!

IMG_0365

Miso Paitan Ramen 55k

IMG_0356 IMG_0357

Cheese Miso Ramen

This is their new menu. And it was superb! They said I was the first one to try this menu. Woohoo! The chicken charsiu was tender and juicy. Served with tamago, corn and cheese. The texture of the broth was rich and fatty and very flavorful. And I love how they put the cheese in the form of grated cheese. Well, the miso itself was well-seasoned, and to add cheese was a genius thought. OMG! I wish they used pork charsiu. LOL. Kidding! It’s definitely “halal.” No pork no lard. *still sobbing* hahaha..

IMG_0362 IMG_0363

Congratulations Yoisho Ramen for making my lunch super delicious. Good luck on the Grand Opening. Hope I can be there.

Onthree at Senopati Suites SCBD Jakarta

December 29th, 2017. Aline told me about this new place in Senopati Suites. And that lovely Friday morning, I went to Onthree with hubby. Then Aline came with her friends. We were having fun in that beautiful place. They have indoor and outdoor area. Different theme, for sure, but it’s a very stunning place. If it’s a good weather, such a very comfortable choice to sit outside. The bright natural light is overwhelming. But at that time, we sat inside. The sun was too strong.

IMG_9596

Located on the 3rd floor of the new Senopati Suites apartment (tower A), it was very easy to find. Just search for a new Senopati Suites, just beside the previous apartment. Then they will direct you to the nearest path to Onthree. And when the elevator open its door, you will find the dazzling place.

IMG_9595 IMG_9607 IMG_9601 IMG_9597 IMG_9608 IMG_9600 IMG_9598 IMG_9599 IMG_9606 IMG_9602 IMG_9603 IMG_8546 IMG_8547 IMG_9605 IMG_9604

Flat White 36k

IMG_9621

Kurogoma Coffee 45k

Cappucino with roasted and ground black sesame

It was Aline’s order. It’s one of their signature coffee. And when I sipped, I knew right away why it’s their signature coffee. Love the texture and the flavour. It was such a delicious coffee. The black sesame was interesting. A very interesting flavour. Recommended!

IMG_9618

Ice Coco Latte 40k

Iced latte with hints of coconut freshness

Actually I didn’t really like coconut, but I wanted to try this drink since it’s one of their signature too. And too bad, I also didn’t like it when it’s in my iced latte. LOL. Maybe I should try the hot one. Hmm.. maybe..

IMG_9620

Lychee Ice Tea 30k

It’s like any other lychee ice tea. Sweet and refreshing.

IMG_9609

Green Tea Latte Iced 40k

IMG_9617

Chocolate Almond Croissant

I forgot to ask them about the croissant whether is it homemade or not. Actually, it was very good. The texture of the croissant was very particular. Not too crispy and made it like crackers, and not too mushy and made it like common breads. Just perfect. And the taste of the chocolate with almond was just scrumptious. I think it’s one of the most delicious croissant I’ve ever tried.

IMG_9622 IMG_9623

Congratulations Onthree for the opening. Definitely will be back soon.

Sushi Hiro at Suryo Senopati Jakarta

October 27th, 2017. I was very curious about Sushi Hiro since Hans told me that they’re very good. So, when it was opened in Senopati area, I was very overjoyed. Before Senopati, they opened in PIK and Kelapa Gading. Too far from my place. Senopati, just a nice distance from my neighborhood.

IMG_7246

Located at Suryo street, the place is magical at night. The lightings are beautiful and magnificent. But, for me, I prefer come at noon, since I need to take photos of the food. Bright light from the day is always the best. And lucky me, Hans treated us there. Yaaaaay. Thanks babe. *kiss kiss* So, at the day, I came on time. Then I waited for Cindy and Aline, and finally Hans came, after trapped in traffic jam *pukpuk*. The place was outrageously crowded. Thank goodness Hans already booked the table for us.

IMG_7247 IMG_7249 IMG_7280 IMG_7248 IMG_7251 IMG_7250 IMG_7252 IMG_7256 IMG_7257 IMG_7254 IMG_7253 IMG_7258 IMG_7259

Sushi Stairs (pricing depends on the items ordered)

They served sushi moriawase in a form of stairs. Moriawase means combination platter or assorted. So, it can be anything. Inside the stairs were: Aburi Salmon Belly Foie Gras (1 piece) 45k, Aburi Salmon Cheese (2 pieces) 25k, Salmon Volcano Roll (2 pieces) 40k, Hotate Volcano Roll (1 piece) 40k, Aburi Beef Onsen Egg Roll (1 piece) 40k. Those sushi were all delicious. Melt-in-your-mouth kind of sushi. My favourite of course the one with foie gras hohohoho. Yes, everything with foie gras is always dabest!

IMG_7270 IMG_7275

Ultimate Truffle Gyu Don 85k

Truffle sauce, US Beef, Onsen Egg and garlic chip

When it came to our table, I spotted the truffle, in a jiffy. Ugh, it was yumyum. The US Beef was tender and juicy. Always love onsen egg. It was definitely one of the best truffle gyu don. We literally fought for the truffle gyu don. Hahahaha.

IMG_7260 IMG_7261 IMG_7267

Okonomiyaki Onsen Egg 60k

The best okonomiyaki so far! Trust me! It was very delightful. The texture of the okonomiyaki was tender and delicate. Okonomiyaki means grilled as you like it. It’s a savory version of Japanese pancake. It’s very genius to use onsen egg with the okonomiyaki. Hohoho. The combination of the texture were overwhelming. And it tasted heaven! Super recommended!

IMG_7263 IMG_7264

Chicken Katsu Don 50k

It was Azka’s order. I tried it and I agreed with Azka. He loved it. It was big portion with delicious taste of the chicken katsu. Well, I loved it too hahaha..

IMG_7265 IMG_7266

Ultimate Truffle Tori Dry Ramen 60k

I don’t think it was in the menu. Hans ordered this one for us. When I tried this one, my heart exploded! It was super duper delicious. Generous minced chicken with beautiful onsen egg. And I love the texture of the dry ramen. It was so tender, perfect for my taste bud.OMG! Right now I’m drooling while writing about it.

IMG_7276 IMG_7278

Thank you Sushi Hiro and of course my lovely bro, Hans, for making our lunch happier. Super yaaaaay!

Stillwater Coffee & Co at Gunawarman Senopati Jakarta

December 7th, 2017. Lovely morning. After breakfast with sisters, I went to Gunawarman with hubby for a visit to the newest coffee shop there. Stillwater Coffee & Co invited me this Saturday. Too bad I have to host an event at the same time. So I think I better come this Thursday before anyone else. LOL.

IMG_8776

Happy that I could meet the owner, Chef Vania Wibisono, but I didn’t have the courage to speak to her. Hahaha. I just saw her and smiled at her. Yes, they told me that the coffee shop was owned by the beautiful chef, and all the sandwiches and croissants and cakes are healthy. They also will serve salad, later. Superb! Actually, I was curious about the name, but I forgot to ask them. Well, I will update about it soon, ok. And I won’t talk about the Chef. You can find about her everywhere on the internet hahaha. The coffee shop is beautiful. Located at the first floor of the building *the second floor is a yoga place* Stillwater stunned me with their minimalist atmosphere and friendly ambiance. They have small outdoor area too for smoking room.

IMG_8774 IMG_8777 IMG_8778 IMG_8792 IMG_8793 IMG_8779 IMG_8780 IMG_8781 IMG_8782 IMG_8783 IMG_8784 IMG_8786 IMG_8789 IMG_8773 IMG_8788 IMG_8802 IMG_8803 IMG_8791 IMG_8787 IMG_8785 IMG_8790

Ice Lychee Tea 45k

IMG_8794

Caffe Latte 43k

Beautiful latte art. Love it. The texture of the coffee was a little bit watery with bitter flavour, but the after taste was delicious. I forgot to ask about the beans, but I guess it should be good.

IMG_8795

Unicorn Sandwich 45k

Rainbow Cheese & Dulce de Leche

I was happy when I saw the menu that they have unicorn sandwich. Too bad it’s not really colourful when it came to my table. It’s prettier in the menu hahaha. Well, my hubby tried it and he said, “It’s not sweet.” Well, he thought it will be super sweet. But no, it’s not that sweet. It’s really good, with perfect texture of the sandwich and the rainbow cheese. Dulce de leche is a thick, creamy caramel sauce traditionally made with milk and sugar that are simmered together for hours. It enhanced the flavour of the Unicorn Sandwich.

IMG_8801 IMG_8800

Tuna Melt Sandwich 70k

Tuna, Mayo, Onion, Signatured Herbs, Green Paprika, Grilled Cheese & Cucumber

Actually I ordered for croissant. But they served us another sandwich. Well, they kindly wanted to change it but I didn’t want to. “It’s okay. Definitely fine.” I tried the tuna melt sandwich. The flavour of the tuna was impeccable. We just thought that there were too many onion and cucumber hahaha. Other than that, perfecto!

IMG_8798 IMG_8799

Chocolate Cheese Cake 47k

Well, they said it’s one healthy cake. And I thought, “one of the delicious healthy cakes!” The texture of the cake was fluffy and moist. The chocolate flavour and the cheese flavour mixed perfectly in harmony. Addictive cake. They said it’s their most-ordered cake. Wow. Recommended!

IMG_8796 IMG_8797

Congratulations Stillwater Coffee & Co. Congratulations Chef Vania Wibisono. Definitely will be back to try the Salad Betawi.

Morningville Eatery at Wijaya 1 Petogogan Jakarta

September 11th, 2017. I saw Morningville Eatery on my way to some place *I cannot remember which place* LOL. Then, I searched on their Instagram account. They opened end of July. So, it’s quite new, right? It’s time for me to spent one morning there!

IMG_4777

I think they were in the same building with Conclave coworking space. It’s too early, I didn’t look around hahaha.. Morningville occupied one spacious area with lovely atmosphere and greenish ambiance. Well, just look at my photos below, guys.

IMG_4778 IMG_4789 IMG_4779 IMG_4796 IMG_4783 IMG_4780 IMG_4781 IMG_4788 IMG_4797 IMG_4786 IMG_4782 IMG_4784 IMG_4787 IMG_4785

Cafe Latte 33k

My morning latte was perfect! The glass wasn’t too big. The latte wasn’t too creamy. And the coffee was just at the right portion. The latte art was also lovely. I could smell delicious aroma from the cafe latte.

IMG_4793

Croque Madame 64k

Beef Bacon & Mozzarella Cheese Sandwich, Homemade Mornay Sauce, Sunny Side Up, Fries, Mixed Greens

I had my breakfast at home, so I thought maybe I should order something small. And voila! Croque Madame. Hahahaha. Beautiful presentation with gorgeous sunny side up on top of the sandwich. OMG! It’s really a perfect morning for me. The sandwich was delicious with flavourful beef bacon and perfectly melted mozzarella cheese. Dayum!

Sofia Restaurant at The Gunawarman Senopati Jakarta

October 12th, 2017. I was very happy when I received invitation from Sofia at The Gunawarman. I wanted to visit the place, but a little bit afraid with the place. Well, it looked very intimidating. Don’t blame me. Look for yourself. Hahaha. But, finally, after visited the place, it’s not that scary. 🙂

IMG_6495

A radiant naturally lit gourmet restaurant decorated gracefully with a row of striking floor-to-ceiling arc windows that serves exceptional Italian, French and Asian cuisines with a comfort of everyday dining approach.

Located at Hotel The Gunawarman, Sofia stood beautifully with the elegant and luxury ambiance. But, I felt the friendly gesture from the place. Well, I came to an IGers gathering, so it’s very fun to meet different kind of people.
